Very clear document. Two minor comments:

Section 1., paragraph 1:
>    The Softwires Working Group has selected Layer Two Tunneling Protocol
>    version 2 (L2TPv2) as the phase 1 protocol to be deployed in the
>    Softwire "Hubs and Spokes" solution space.  This document describes
>    the framework for the L2TPv2 "Hubs and Spokes" solution, and the
>    implementation details specified in this document should be followed
>    to achieve interoperability among different vendor implementations.

  Referring to WGs and their decision process in RFCs isn't terribly
  useful, because WGs are ephemeral. I'd suggest to rephrase this to
  talk about the technology itself.

Section 4., paragraph 0:
> 4.  Standardization Status
>
>    This section groups various Internet standards documents and other
>    publications used in Softwires.

  I don't understand the purpose of this section. Is this supposed to be
  a reading list of related work, provided for the convenience of
  implementors? If so, the section title is confusing.
